I suppose it should. I have a patch attached with all of the fixes,
including support for resolving the symbolic link. However, I'm not sure
it's entirely correct. Here's the relevant snippet:
  if (special)
    {
      svn_string_t *resolved_path;
      SVN_ERR (svn_io_read_link (&resolved_path, path, pool));
      path = resolved_path->data;
    }

My question is do I have to now go back an get an access baton for the new
resolved path? I suppose I should probably check the resolved path and
make sure it's a file too, or can I be certain that it points to a file?

Thanks for the help.

-John
